If the need arises, we may also move the Site to another domain or close the Site indefinitely.
6.4 Risk of harm
Please note that there are risks, including but not limited to the risk of physical harm, of dealing with strangers, including persons who may be acting under false pretenses. Please choose carefully the information you post on the Site and that you give to other Site users. You are discouraged from publicly posting the following information on the Site: your full name, telephone numbers and street addresses. Contributions and other information that others upload or post to the Site are not pre-moderated. Despite the prohibitions contained in this Agreement, such Contributions and other information may be offensive, harmful or inaccurate and may be mislabeled or deceptively labelled. You assume all risks associated with viewing such content and dealing with other users with whom you come in contact through the Site. We expect that you will use caution and common sense when using the Site.
This Agreement shall remain in full force and effect while you use the Site. If you have a Site account you may terminate your Site account at any time, for any reason, by sending us an email. Upon termination of your Site account for any reason, you will no longer be able to retrieve materials contained in or accessed via your account. Even after your use and participation of the Website or your Site account has terminated, the sections of this Agreement that are intended to survive termination will remain in effect, including sections: 1-3, 5-8 and 10-18.
If you upload material or otherwise do anything in relation to our Site that infringes our copyright or the copyright of others, we may, without prejudice to our rights set out at section 6 (Our Management of the Site and User Misconduct), terminate your account and access rights to the Site.
The Internet and technology are rapidly changing. The material and information available on the Site may become out of date at any given time and we are under no obligation to update the contents of the Site. We may modify this Agreement from time to time. We will contact registered users if we do so, which is why it is important that you notify us immediately if your email address changes. If you are a registered user, you may be asked to click to accept the new agreement the next time you log on to the Site in order to be able to use the interactive portions of the Site. We will also put any revised versions of this Agreement on the Site with a notice advising of the change. It is therefore important that you regularly check the Site for any announcements about revisions.
You are solely responsible for your conduct when accessing and using the Site. You agree that we cannot be liable for any dispute that arises between you and any other user.
Any dispute arising in relation to your access and use of the Site (including any non-contractual dispute or claim) shall be governed by the laws of the United States (exclusive of its choice of law provisions) and you and we agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the US courts.
Contributions, information and other materials made available on our Site, whether by SunPower or other users of the Site, are not intended to amount to advice on which reliance should be placed. We therefore disclaim, to the fullest extent permitted by law, all liability and responsibility arising from any reliance placed on such materials by any visitor to our Site, or by anyone who may be informed of any of its contents.
All content, information or any other materials or items provided through the Site are provided "as is" and "as available" and (to the fullest extent permitted by law) without warranty or conditions of any kind. To the fullest extent permitted by law, we disclaim all express, implied, statutory and other warranties, guarantees or representations, including without limitation the warranties of merchantability, fitness for purpose and non-infringement of proprietary and intellectual property rights.
By operating the Site, we do not represent or imply that we endorse any Contributions or any other materials available on or linked to by the Site, including without limitation, content hosted on Third Party Sites, or that we believe such Contributions or any other materials are complete, accurate, useful or non-harmful. We cannot guarantee and do not promise any specific results from the use of the Site. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from us or the Site shall create any warranty not expressly stated in this Agreement. You agree that your use of the Site and its services will be at your sole risk. To the fullest extent permitted by law, we and each of our advertisers, licensors, suppliers, officers, directors, investors, employees, agents, service providers and other contractors disclaim all warranties, express or implied in connection with the Site and your use of it.
Subject to section 14 (Our Liability), we assume no liability or responsibility for any (a) errors, mistakes or inaccuracies of content and materials, (b) personal injury or property damage, of any nature whatsoever, resulting from your access to and use of our Site or services, (c) any unauthorised access to or use of our secure servers and/or any and all personal information stored therein, (d) any interruption or cessation of transmission to or from the Site, (e) any bugs, viruses, trojan horses, or the like, which may be transmitted to or through the Site by any third party, and/or (f) any errors or omissions in any content and materials or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any content posted, transmitted, or otherwise made available via the Site.
We do not guarantee that our site will be secure or free from bugs or viruses. You are responsible for configuring your information technology, computer programmes and platform in order to access our site. You should use your own virus protection software.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation or exclusion of certain warranties, or the exclusion or limitation of certain damages. If you reside in one of these jurisdictions, the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you to the extent they are inconsistent with applicable law.
In no event shall we be liable to you or any third party for any direct, indirect, consequential, incidental, special, exemplary or punitive or any other loss or damages, including without limitation any direct or indirect loss of revenue or profit, business interruption or loss of data arising from your use of the Site and any Contributions, materials or any other content available on the Site or otherwise arising in connection with this Agreement, whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or for breach of statutory duty or in any other way.
We will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by a virus, distributed denial-of-service attack, or other technologically harmful material that may infect your computer equipment, computer programs, data or other proprietary material due to your use of our site or to your downloading of any content on it, or on any website linked to it.
This does not affect our liability for death or personal injury arising from our negligence, nor our liability for fraudulent misrepresentation, nor any other liability which cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law.
You acknowledge and agree that spam is harmful to a site, service or network and causes injury, including damage to reputation and goodwill, which is difficult to measure. As a pre-estimate of our anticipated loss, you agree to pay us A$100 for each unsolicited commercial email or other unsolicited commercial communication that you send from, to or through the Site.
You agree to indemnify and hold us, our subsidiaries, affiliates, related entities and licensors and their respective officers, agents, partners and employees, harmless from any loss, liability, claim, or demand, including reasonable legal fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your use of the Site or any Materials in breach of this Agreement and/or arising from a breach of this Agreement and/or any breach of your representations and warranties set forth above.
You may link to our home page, provided you do so in a way that is fair, accurate, and legal and does not damage our reputation or take advantage of it. You must not establish a link in such a way as to suggest any form of association, approval or endorsement on our part where none exists. You must not establish a link to our Site in any website that is not owned by you. Our Site must not be framed on any other site, nor may you create a link to any part of our Site other than the home page. We reserve the right to withdraw linking permission without notice.
